The newly appointed Gallants interim head coach, Dylan Kerr, believes that Miguel Timm will bounce back after recovering from injury. Miguel Timm has been one of the most well-trusted players for Pirates before getting injured and the club was pleased to announce his return along with Richard Ofori and Thembinkosi Lorch.
“Look I feel he started well and the fans like him you know, he has a good attitude. The injury he sustained has left him sidelined for a long time, however, I believe he will get back to full force. I mean I have seen him come back from an injury while I used to coach him, and he surprised me. His one of the strongest individuals I know.
“Remember I said to you that confidence is when you not playing for a long time you know, that’s when your consistency drops and your performances differ, that still applies. Even though he has been on the sidelines because of his injury, I don’t think his confidence will be impacted. He knows he has the ability and he believes in himself and I was blessed to have coached him” he told Thisisfootball.Africa.
Timm being back in the mix for Pirates will widen the pool for coach Jose Riveiro to choose from. Timm’s presence in the team will allow Pirates to rotate players as game come thick and fast. The 30-year-old played a pivotal role in the middle of the park forming a solid partnership with Thabang Monare giving Pirates more depth and solidity, as he managed 14 games under his belt in the league for the Buccaneers and one assist.
Timm is one of the most versatile midfielders at Pirates, who can occupy different positions in the middle of the park. A well-gifted individual, who has an eye for a pass and knows how to defend as well. Coach Kerr concurred with those sentiments and alluded to his ability to interchange positions.
“When he played for me, he was a more offensive player. He plays sensible but safe as well. His defensive ability was top-notch, and he can be creative as well. For me, his best style of play was a creative player because of his passing ability and his vision,” coach Kerr said.
